Mapping Protocols of the European Foresight Platform (Prototype 1.0)

April 9, 2010

As the European Foresight Platform (EFP) project can be seen as the follow up of the European Foresight Monitoring Network (EFMN), the EFP Mapping Environment will be based on the proven concept of the EFMN Mapping activities. However, the lessons learned during the EFMN project will be integrated in the new EFP Mapping Environment.

The Mapping Environment will be both (a) an independent working environment for the EFP WorkPackage 2 activities lead by the University of Manchester and (b) a “plug-in” section of the EFP website (lead by TNO). The main objectives of developing a fully operational mapping environment are:

  • To map foresight practices, outcomes and players
  • To analyse key features and outputs of foresight exercises
  • To put in place an interactive “Mapping Environment” for data input/validation/output
  • To provide a common space to share and discuss foresight findings and documents
  • To interact and share information with other work packages (especially the website)
  • To network the Mapping Environment with other EC projects/networks (i.e. ERAWATCH, METRIS, iKNOW)
  • To generate appealing information about practices and key findings of foresight exercises (producing annual mapping reports for different readership)
